Monthly Archives:February 2016


Hello my friends

How have you been? We’ve been doing pretty good.
We’re both well and the boys are as ornery as ever.
Judy has gone with her sisters up to Eagle Lake to
see her brother Ricky. He’s in a nursing home up
there. Me and the boys have run of the house while
she’s gone hehehe. Of course, Benny is barking at
everything he hears thinking one of those things is
his mom coming home and he’s driving me crazy 😉
Rocky is lying in the floor right behind me quietly
as he waits for his mom to come home. I just ran
out of orange juice. I’ve gotta go fill my glass back
up, be right back 🙂 I’m back. I’ve gotta have my
orange juice for the day for my good old vitamin C.
It’s cold and wet today, Right now at 3:00 PM it’s
30 F degrees. It doesn’t look or even feel like it’s
February at all. I’m not complaining. It saves on
our heating oil, but I hope it doesn’t follow suit
through the summer. I can’t handle much above
80 F degrees. I’m very hot natured even more so
due to the loss of my colon and all. I’ve always
been hot natured and the heat would cause me to
dehydrate quickly. Oh well, enough about that.
Now on to another topic LOL. Judy went with
her sister Dena down to Bangor hospital Friday
so that Dena could have some test done and they
were gone all day, so me and the boys once again
had the run of the house and we just enjoyed our
guy time hehehe. OK so they’re dogs. They’re
still of the male species LOL. I was planning on
writing my poetry while Judy was gone, but it
did not happen due to Benny barking at anything
he heard thinking it was his mom coming home,
so I had to wait and write my poetry and haiku
Saturday 🙂 No matter, it got done. I managed
to get them all written in about 3 hours, just a
few minutes before our TV programs came on.
Yes, I know, we live such an exciting life LOL.
We don’t need much to be happy. We have each
other and that’s all we need. Us and the boys
live a peaceful life with a few four legged runs
through the house all through the day. Benny
and Rocky keep us amused with the silly antics
they often will do 🙂 I still find myself wishing
that I could visit my friends and family down
south, but it is what it is and so here I am up
here praying for a friend. It would be great to
have a friend which was also a musician like
me that I could jam with, but for now I will
just play alone. Thank God for my camera 🙂
I can take pictures of the scenery and our silly
little boys. I wish that the scenery would get
a bit more pleasant to look at, but due to this
weird weather, it has turned all icy, but there
is still some great scenery 🙂 We just have to
drive for it LOL. Benny and Rocky always
enjoy going for a ride with us. They love to
look out the windows hehehe. So if you have
not guessed it yet, there’s not much going on
in the Pearce’s Place hehehe. I had to let the
boys out to go potty and just now they were
at the door barking to come back in. It was
really just Rocky barking hehehe. Benny lets
Rocky do all the talking on that instance but
when it’s wanting treats, Benny is the old
chatterbox hehehe. Rocky will just jump up
and down and spin in circles LOL. Of course
in time if Benny’s barking doesn’t get a treat
he will start barking and trying to tell us what
he wants. Yep, this house has gone to the
dogs hehehe. Rocky is right beside me now
with his paw up asking for a treat, because
his brother Benny is in the living room LOL.
I mentioned Benny’s name real loud, but it
seems he’s to caught up with watching for his
mom to come and get a treat hehehe. Oh
well, I’ll give him one when he decides to
comes in here. LOL Rocky is looking up
at me with that face saying, I want another
treat. Nope, you’ve had one and that’s all
you need. I’m sure mom will give you more
when she gets home. LOL She always does.
Rocky has finally laid down in the dog bed
beside me. Benny is still in the living room
on the recliner waiting for Judy as he does
most often. She should be home soon and
then maybe we’ll eat brunch or supper LOL.
I ate a Croissant about 10 AM, but that’s
long gone hehehe. Judy drove into town
Saturday and bought us sub sandwiches
from Subway and took the boys so that I
could write and we both still have half of a
sub to eat. It sounds like Judy might be
home or Benny is just barking at nothing
again thinking he heard something hehehe.
As I presumed hehehe, it was nothing 🙂
He misses his mom. He’s the same way
when I am gone. Both of them are. They
sit by the door waiting for me to come
back from checking the mail and then
pounce on me when I walk in LOL. Yep
we’ve got some silly boys, but they are
loving little boys and we love them a lot.
Well it’s time for me to get a Mountain
Dew. I finished my orange juice. I’ll be
back as Arnold Schwarzenegger would
say LOL. I would hate to have such a
long last name as Schwarzenegger. Can
you imagine having to always spell it
out for people. (Oh forget it, just call
me Short) Yep, it’s bad enough with
the last name Pearce, because people
will automatically start spelling it the
other way as Pierce. That’s when I’ve
gotta tell them, we’re the Pea Pearce
not the Pie Pierce LOL. There’s a road
and stream in Houlton that’s named the
Pearce’s. Well there’s not much else
to tell you aside from the usual, which
is that we are still hanging in there as
struggles come upon us. Yep, we do
have our fair share of problems, but
God is always with us to give us the
strength to carry on. I thank God for
all of the blessings that He has put in
our lives. My life before Judy was
filled with much loneliness, but God
found the right person to fill that void
and show me a different world with a
snow filled winter and colors that I’ve
never partaken with my eyes as fall
explodes with beauty. Thank You God
for all that You have given me and all
that You have allowed in my life. If it
were not for the rough roads, I would
not see the beauty as I do. The troubles
have made me more thankful. Now, I
believe it’s time for me to begin looking
back on all that I’ve written here to see
if I can find a good word or phrase that
I can use for the title of today’s brand
new poem. So, it’s away I go, to that
place of my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE and
it looks like that while reading back,
I may have found a decent title about
halfway into the journal talking about
our two ornery boys hehehe. Now to
see if I can write anything that makes
any sense using it hehehe. Here goes.

Wanting Treats

Many people
only seek
pleasures from
another week.
Wanting treats
without the pain
might just find
themselves insane.
Treats of days
and weeks are best
when we’ve tried,
to complete the test.
Yet so many
will just stand
wanting treats
with opened hand.
Don’t letting wanting
to be found
with you only
looking around.
Find the best
that God completes.
Don’t just be one
wanting treats.
Search for truthful
in your gain
not just wanting
treats of fame.
Allow yourself to
try and fail
while your efforts
then set sail.
When your day is
what completes,
then it’s time for
wanting treats.

That might not make a lick of sense to you. but
I hope it does for somebody LOL. I also hope I
didn’t lose you in my rambling LOL. I do tend
to drift from one topic to another in a moments
time hehehe. It’s 30 F degrees now at 5:25 PM.
It might snow a bit tonight. I had my weather
program set on a station up in Eagle Lake a bit
ago and thought, that weather doesn’t seem to
be correct hehehe. I had changed it to see what
Judy and her sisters would be driving up into.
So now it’s back on Houlton weather and yes it
is 30 F degrees. It’s 21 F at Eagle Lake which
is 90 miles north of us. I hope Judy gets home
soon. Benny is just about to drive me bonkers 🙂
I think he’s also driving Rocky bonkers hehehe.
It’s 5:34 PM now and I guess it’s time for me
to be telling you what I tell you almost every
week and that is, I wrote some more poems
and haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems with
1 of them being about the boys. I also wrote
22 more haiku for all of the haiku lovers out
there. I hope you can find 1 or 2 of either or
both that you like. Now I believe it’s time for
me to begin my search for that hardly elusive
off switch, but not before I wish you a most
joyous weekend or whatever’s left of it and
a truly blessings filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. OK, where
are ya hiding this week ya little varmint?
LOL OK, I had to look a little harder this
time, but still, you could do a whole lot
better. Hiding behind my K2 Meter was a
pretty good spot and would of been better
if you would not of been poking your head
up to see if I could see you hehehehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny, Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Windows Clear

Tinted windows
sometimes seen
hide a nightmare
show a dream.
Dirty windows
often are
seen on people
near and far.
Some are windows
of the heart
sometimes found
a work of art.
Yet some windows
are disgust
filled with hatred
dirt and dust.
We need windows
found sincere
filled will Gods love
windows clear.

Places Remembered

Long ago pathways
of footsteps we trod
find what’s remembered
a blessing from God.
Places remembered
that pictures remind
often are pathways
a one of a kind.
Scenes we’ve discovered
and places we’ve found
become as the places
that do so astound.
That place at the moment
might not seem so great,
but seem a lot better
another times date.
Places remembered
will often come alive
inside of our heartbeat
as thoughts do derive.

Countless Stars

Twinkling in the sky above
are seasons seen at night
countless stars so far away
that twinkle oh so bright.
Echoes of the universe
are seen as distant signs
forming patterns in the sky
as wonderful designs.
The big and little dipper
shine so free and fair
along with the moonlight
in crisp nighttime air.
The scenes all exploding
as nighttime’s own cuisine,
countless stars and moonlight
seeming as a dream.
Maybe a cloud or two
might come into the sky,
but countless stars will still be there
as time goes marching by.

Beyond The Sea

Upon a sandy beach of time
there’s sights ones can see,
an ocean vessel’s mast and sails
are then beyond the sea.
Just as a painting far away
it seems to be in air
floating in the distant scene
beyond the seas out there.
Even sunlight’s morning view
is found to glimmer on
found out then beyond the sea
with early mornings dawn.
Beyond the sea of memories
the ocean shows its waves
as a moments time to dance
as it all behaves.
The minutes counted then are found
as a moment free,
a segment of a blessing found
far beyond the sea.

My Looking Glass

Within my own reflection
is a person I can see
found within my looking glass
I’m looking back at me.
This person filled with moments
that are time to pass
me with minutes ticking on
within my looking glass.
I sometimes see my wrinkled face
and say how old am I
and then again on other days
I focus on each eye.
I look real deep into my eyes
and see someone that’s there
standing with a moments time
just needing breath of air.
Those reflections that I see
are often found within
while looking in my looking glass
I see the new begin.

While decisions might be
of an uncertain style,
some might be moments
that lead to a smile.
Yet many decisions
might lead us astray,
while giving us lessons
found Hell to pay.
Uncertain decisions
will often find a price
maybe much greater
than the sought for device.
Looking for pathways
of journeys to trod
uncertain footsteps
might not be of God.
So make sure your decisions
are not Hells design,
for uncertain choices
can be a land mine.
Pray before acting on
uncertain pathways
and God will be with you
making good of your days.

Life In A Movie

Seen as a storyline
sometimes is found
life in a movie
with time going around.
Scenes of a decade
might come into view
with stories remembered,
the things that you’d do.
Life in a movie
of a seasonal glance
might at times seem like
a real song and dance.
The minutes found ticking
will often inlay
life in a movie
of a distant display.
Not a real movie,
but a lifetime you see
life in a movie
of your history.

Little Feet

Footsteps in the night
as a pitter patter sound
are little feet running
here there around.
Tiny feet, little feet
prancing with joy
are the sounds we hear
of our two little boys.
Four legged children
just running about,
little feet running around
now in and out.
Dodging our footsteps
they’re so often seen,
little feet running around
just like a dream.
These little doggies
make us complete
our two little boys with
their little feet.

Forest Of Thoughts

Thinking as a thought full
of forest of thoughts
my mind will often be as
a little bit lost.
Found in a moments time
beyond what I see
in a forest of thoughts
through my history.
Lost in a battle with
my many illusions
a forest of thought will
create confusions.
Sometimes as snowdrifts
blinding my ways
a forest of thoughts is
like distant days.
Some seeming similar,
but not as the same
a forest of thoughts will
confuse my brain.
So as the problems are
finding me lost
I seek for Lord Jesus
in a forest of thoughts.

The Blade of A Knife

Sharp is our wording
when spoken in anger
the blade of a knife,
that leads us to danger.
Speaking in the heat
of a moment on fire
the blade of a knife
might be like barbwire.
Not only cutting
the one standing there,
but striking on you
as barbs unaware.
The blade of a knife
are the words that we say
cutting ones down
in a harmful array.
Don’t let your wording
to end in pure strife,
for it might cut you
as the blade of a knife.

Guiding lights of stars
give forth a moments glimmer
guiding ships captains.

The brisk blowing wind
displays an awesome journey
of its own design.

Confusions morning
comes as dawns of perception
found in the seconds.

A nowhere person
leaves trails from where they have been
coming from somewhere.

Backwash of rivers
often finds leftover time
displayed in its path.

An anchor of time
holds many firmly in place,
while new days move passed.

Mornings gentle breeze
could become a large tornado,
so take precautions.

Life as an echo
only shows what has been done,
while creation seeks.

Various people
have various decisions,
for we are unique.

The past of haters
leaves a trail of misery
that might just explode.

Searching for true love,
ones will often look blindly
without first praying.

Allowing an instance
to become all that you see
will blind your future.

Ongoing fighting
might seem to have a purpose,
that may just be you.

A winter birds flight
often finds it in the snow
as it seeks to land.

Nevermore is thought
when a past is recorded,
but it might return.

Hurting ones feelings
should never be a pleasure,
for that leads to hate.

The love of Lord God
brings many through their problems
with lessons well learned.

A ship out at sea
will often rock back and forth
as the ocean churns.

Keeping a secret
needs to know what’s important
and what needs be heard.

Relaxing the mind
will allow peace to be found
as a butterfly.

An open doorway
will allow the good and bad,
so guard your passage.

A true friend of yours
will remain your friend always,
no matter what’s done.

My wife Judy’s Poetry books 🙂
{Moonlight and Owls by Judy Pearce}
and her newest
{Hello My Name Is Benny}
They can also be found at Amazon
Ben Geurts Drawing Art site
and Old Fashioned Christmas site
My Animal’s Greetings site below
One of my friends sites below
and once again the poetry contest at
Me on YouTube
Your frosty friend Bill 🙂


Hello my friends

So I guess you may or may not have noticed
that I didn’t write my journal last week. We
were sick. Judy and I had a case of the flu or
something of that nature. I couldn’t write due
to coughing and sneezing not to mention the
headaches and fever that went along with it 🙂
Judy and I are both well now and back to our
ornery selves. Benny and Rocky are still Benny
and Rocky hehehe. Nothing changed there.
The weather has been bouncing all over the
freaking place. Warm then cold, then warm
again and then freezing, well you get the idea.
Today’s high is 35 F which is what it is right
now. It snowed a bit an hour or so ago and
it’s supposed to snow a bit more this evening.
Judy just let the boys back in. I let them out
an hour or so ago to go potty and to play in
the snow. Now they’re playing chase through
the house. I was playing fetch with Rocky.
He for some unknown reason gets the fact
that when I throw the toy, he is to bring
it back to me so I can throw it again, but
he hasn’t quite acquired the knowledge that
he must release the toy so I can throw it 🙂
I have to trick him into letting it go and then
throw it again. We’re hoping that Benny
catches on to the fetch idea. We’ve tried and
tried to teach him, but all he does when we
throw a toy is he runs off with it. It turns
into a game of fetch for us. Maybe one day
he will learn, I hope. Maybe even Rocky
will learn that he must release the toy so I
can throw it again hehehe. We love them 🙂
Our grandson Christian came and spent
Friday and Saturday with us. We always
enjoy having him over. I wish the other
grand kids could come, but I guess they’ll
come when they can. I just looked outside
and saw that it’s snowing a little bit again.
This winter has not been near what we’re
used to. We’ve only had a few days below
zero and that was at night. It’s supposed
to be 8 F degrees by morning and the high
for tomorrow 24 F degrees. Still, nothing
like what we’re used to. Yep, it’s a warm
winter, although I’ve seen on predictions
for next winter about an La Nina which is
the opposite of an El Nino. The La Nina
is supposed to bring more cold air up here.
We shall see how it all pans out. They’ve
been wrong before LOL. Yep, they have
trouble forecasting tomorrows weather so
the chances that they are wrong about next
winter are pretty great hehehe. So what
else is there to chat about? Hmm, well my
sister is doing well or so my mom tells me.
Peggy doesn’t converse with me too much.
It’s the way it has always been, but it doesn’t
stop me from loving her. She’s my sister 🙂
I try to call my mom as often as possible
to make sure she’s OK as well as my sister.
We might see life in a different light, but we
are family and that’s what matters. Though
if it came to be that I was not wanted and
I was just considered trash, I would just
let God deal with it. I’ve seen many families
that were separated due to conspiracies or
some sort of hatred that evolved through
either lies or assumptions. It’s sad, but
true. I try my best to let the past to stay in
the past, but I do have trouble at times as
I am human. I have had lies thrown about
which have prevented me from being who
I wanted to be, but I cannot change any
of the past. Sometimes people will listen to
a good liar and not hear the truth. Oh well,
enough about that. The boys just made a
mad dash for the front door barking all the
way. Judy went to see what the commotion
was about and as we presumed, NOTHING.
Benny hears a thump and even if it’s Judy
or I, he still thinks somebody is at the front
door LOL. Rocky will follow right behind
him to see what it is hehehe. Yep, even if
I hit the table right above Benny he will
still think somebody’s at the front door 😉
LOL he is a character! Us getting Rocky
was a great idea. Rocky can keep up with
Benny, but there are times that Rocky will
wear Benny out and he’s gotta rest hehehe.
We still miss Milo and there are times that
we can feel his presence around the house.
Like times I feel a dog brush up against my
leg and look down and Benny and Rocky
are nowhere to be seen. Yeppers, Milo is
still here with us in spirit. We thank God
for putting all of these miracles in our lives.
For with God, all things are possible and
life continues on. Maybe not what we can
see, but the spirits of loved ones are still
around living as angels and friends among
us. Now, I believe I have rambled quite
enough and it’s time for me to be taking
my little trip back through all that I have
written here to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that I can use for the title
for today’s brand new poem. So, it’s away
I go to that place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I found a decent title, and now to
do something with it LOL. Here goes.

The Commotion

A lifetime of speed bumps
from hither and to
can be the commotion
that makes better you.
Often our choices
from then unto there
will be the commotion
to get us somewhere.
Yet many places
that we might be found
might show the commotion
you need not around.
Don’t let the problems
of yesterdays page
to be the commotion
that’s only on stage.
Look for the blessings
beyond what went wrong
and release the commotion
to seek better dawn.

There ya go. I hope that made a little bit of
sense to ya. Also I hope my rambling didn’t bore
you to sleep LOL. I never truly know if what
I’m saying makes any sense to anybody, but
I hope it does. Of course this is my journal
and in the beginning back in 1995, I was just
writing to myself, but that year was a change
as I allowed 1 to read my journal and they
loved it and wanted me to send it to them and
then they shared with others and more wanted
to receive my journal. Now over twenty years
have passed and my email list is into the multi-
thousands. Can ya believe it. Who would of
ever thought that anybody would want to read
my thoughts LOL! Anyways, my journal has
grown through the years into what it is today.
I am blessed to have this ability and I feel
that it is something that I need to share with
you. So I hope you are enjoying all of my
rambling, poetry and haiku. Before I get
into telling you about it I guess I should tell
you Judy’s mother is doing OK. She’s back
at home with Judy’s sister Trudy. That’s
where Judy was last night. It was craft
night. All of the sisters and daughters get
together one Saturday a month and create
odds and ends. Last night they made crafts
from bottles. Judy used an old Champaign
and beer bottle and made a vase and a
lamp. They turned out quite nice. I might
put a picture of them in the stationery 🙂
So, now I guess it’s time for me to tell
you what I tell you almost every week and
that is, I wrote some more poems and
haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems with
1 about the boys 🙂 I also wrote 22 more
haiku for all of the haiku lovers out there.
I hope you can find 1 or 2 of either or
both that you like. Now I believe it’s time
for me to start searching for that hardly
elusive off switch, but not before I wish
you a wonderful weekend or whatever’s
left of it and a truly blessings filled week.
Remember, Jesus loves you and we do
too. OK, where are ya hiding you little
varmint. That off switch often picks the
worse places to hide. Let’s see if it did
a little better this week being it’s had
an extra week to look. Hmm, I think
I see movement from behind my aspirin
bottle, which is not really hard to do
being the freaking bottle is clear LOL.
Sheesh, are you ever going to try to
find a good place to hide that I won’t
find you by just glancing down hehehe?
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny, Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

P.S. I’m adding a little thought I had
Feb 14 2016 Valentines Day. I also
wrote 3 more poems Saturday while
Judy was at Trudy’s doing crafts 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+3 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Creativity Of the Mind

A square is not just a square,
for it holds many different shapes
within it that can become the
vision, but it takes a little effort
to mold that into existence.
So be not just the square, but
the blossom of flavors from
creativity of the mind.

Lost Words

Reminders of wording
bring forth a clue
what that was lost in
a moment of you.
Lost words perception
becomes just a phase
painted as bookends
a moment a phrase.
Scenes become cloudy
as each day persists
lost words of decades
that we reminisce.
Each page as journals
written through time
become as some lost words
with shadows design.
So many people
will fly like lost birds
with what they’re saying
amidst their lost words.

Winter’s White World

Time is an echo
as words are displayed
winter’s white world
so Heavenly made.
The trees will all glisten
as snow builds upon
winter’s white world
as minutes tick on.
Then in the distance
the flavors are seen
winter’s white world
as a fantastic dream.
Billowing quickly
with snow falling down
winter’s white world
is a moment that’s found.
Each minute counted
is greatly unfurled
as snowflakes falling in
winter’s white world.

Painting A Thought

An old fashioned canvas
with a living array
helps ones to gather
their thoughts day to day.
Painting a sentence
that thoughts recognize
the painter continues
what’s seen by the eyes.
Painting a thought
as what they remember
from all the time frames
of each burning ember.
A canvas so empty
that’s waiting for seasons
from every brushstroke
of remembered reasons.
Then it comes to life
the canvas of not
while turning into a
painting of thought.

Done Without

Thoughts we’re thinking
and things we do
might have been better
to not of been with you.
Done with our actions
as time moves along
bring all the choices
that we chose all wrong.
Lessons from patterns
that we had begun
might have been lesser
if patterns were none.
We all make mistakes
as minutes go by
that might take some time
to see what and why.
Yet it’s the mistakes
that help us about
that many think surely
they could’ve done without.

Lost In Words

A loud sentence spoken
might not be so clear
while lost in words
the sound’s all ones hear.
A moment of anger
set then in flame
the words you’re saying
might seem as insane.
Take a little breather
and then give a go
saying what you’re meaning
for others to know.
Lost in words often
becomes as a cloud
with what you’re saying
not truly endowed.
Give time for peaceful
that’s found in a prayer
and then lost in words
will find some fresh air.

Lives We’ve Lived

Past to present
now and then
lives we’ve lived
have entered in.
Ventured crossroads
journeys through
lives we’ve lived
create the view.
Days and weeks
that years have seen
lives we’ve lived
might seem a dream.
Yet some moments
nightmares are
lives we’ve lived
from near to far.
Past to present
might display
lives we’ve lived
another way.
Things remembered
not so clear
lives we’ve lived
might reappear,
seeming wrongly
as we view
lives we’ve lived
of me and you.
Yet those moments

lives we’ve lived

Changed Appearance

The outwards shell
might hide from view
the good or bad
that’s really true.
Often goodness
is found within,
but the outer shell
shows only sin.
What you’re seeing
might be a lie
for what’s within
might hurt and cry.
A person also
will hide from you
bad intentions
the things they’ll do.
A changed appearance
might not be good,
for what it shows
might be hollow wood.
Changes within
are what that show
the truth within
where all you go.
A changed appearance
is best to be
not just outside
that ones can see.
Changes within you
will show in time
what’s for sure
your honest design.

The Infinite Night

Inside the darkness
holds a place,
a place of dreamlands
dancing taste.
The infinite night
from Venus to Mars
holds many dreamers
up in the stars.
Infinite dreamlands
that come into view
bring forth a glimmer
that seems very new.
A glimmer of worlds
that infinitely
lives in the stars
that dreamers can see.
Then as they’re dreaming
the colors shine through
the infinite night
with red, green and blue.
The twinkling essence
of galaxies gaze
the infinite night
then seems as a haze.
It still continues,
but you cannot find
the infinite night
within the daytime.

Searching Through Clouds

Throughout the daytime
on through the night
I’m searching through clouds
to see a great sight.
A sparkle of cosmos
shining like glass
times that I’m searching
for moments to pass.
Small clouds collecting
and growing then too
as they are making
a wonderful view.
Searching through clouds
I often will find
castle walls building
the greatest design.
Then for a second
I might surely see
loved ones remembered
from my history.
I might even see
some heavenly shrouds
angels protecting me
while searching through clouds

Our Four Legged Boys

The days seem brighter
with those squeaky toys
being played with
by our four legged boys.
They often will surely
get on our nerves
while they are running
swishing with swerves.
But they are truly
the best sight to see
our four legged boys
God gave you and me.
We hear them often
just trying to say
give us a treat
oh won’t you today.
Our four legged boys
are gifts from above,
for they give us smiles
that are filled full of love.

Despite ones wording
we might see clear
the things they’re doing
that words can’t hear.
are found every day
in things that we do
and what we might say.
We might not see them,
but surely they’re there
for contradictions
are everywhere.
So don’t go preaching
and acting so proud,
for your contradictions
are speaking real loud.
We all will do it
and not realize
that our very own wording
might have a few lies.
Maybe not intended,
but we don’t understand
that the contradictions
are how many stand.
It’s our imperfections
that are contradictory
for truth will be true,
with a lies history.
The history we’ve learned
each day is found wrong
as contradictions
show things don’t belong.
The past is confusion
with the future a haze,
it’s our contradictions
that entwine a maze.
Words that one’s saying
that others will hear
will seem contradictory
as times disappear.
Echoes of our past
will be found as repeated
with contradictions
and lessons well seeded.
So as the future
shows one valiant course
know contradictions
will still then enforce.

Midday Thoughts

The passing of minutes
creates such a view
as midday thoughts
that come near to two.
The aroma of winter
is found in the snow
with midday thoughts
sometimes 2 below.
The temperature rising
then going down
as midday thoughts
go around and around.
Often the snowflakes
will float from the sky
then maybe raindrops
land where it’s dry.
Those midday thoughts
might turn into ice
with wintertime’s window
found so precise.
Seasons of sunshine
might then unwind
as midday thoughts
of a wintery time.
Formats of wonder
might also then to
show some icicles
that come into view.
Stringing from windows,
doorways and more
those midday thoughts
are soon before 4.

A Passing Breeze

With every day
there is a scene
one with time
and in between.
A passing breeze
from days gone by
with the questions
who and why.
The portions poured
might seem so small,
but time is grown
to trees so tall.
A passing breeze
might simply say
hello my friend
please look my way.
The breeze might hold
a page of time
filled with stories
found sublime.
So as you watch
the birds and trees
give God thanks
for a passing breeze.

Directions will change
even if you go forwards,
being others change.

Living for yourself
will leave you all by yourself,
for we need others.

Beyond the starlight
holds so many mysteries
that we cannot count.

Life is a journey
that begins with just one step
towards or away.

Trust of a flower
comes greatly in the sunshine
as it needs its warmth.

A snowflake will melt
as it gets too warm to freeze
and turns to water.

Having fits of rage
will cause a downfall in love,
pushing it away.

Leftover heartbeats
could become as some baggage
that you’ve not let go.

Time can be countless
with the windows of future
filled full of fear.

Age old decisions
create the life of today
that might need changing.

Blue is the color
the sky above will display
until the day is done.

Shadows of ourselves
might display the truth in us
that we wish to hide.

Evenings of romance
are the stars that will twinkle
playing with a heart.

Love finds emotion
in the realm of existence
that’s within Heaven.

Lost is a rosebud
that finds snowflakes upon it
in the midst of spring.

Forever thinking
might lose right nows perception
of what can be done.

Links to a flower
are found within many seeds
waiting to blossom.

Sharing the sunshine
are the trees with many leaves
to give air to breathe.

A glimmer of hope
finds its way inside hopeless
as many will pray.

The sight of danger
puts fear inside many hearts,
but others find strength.

A four legged friend
can bring joy into a life
that was found empty.

Living for today
can be tomorrows problem
if you are careless.

My wife Judy’s Poetry books 🙂
{Moonlight and Owls by Judy Pearce}
and her newest
{Hello My Name Is Benny}
They can also be found at Amazon
Ben Geurts Drawing Art site
and Old Fashioned Christmas site

Me on YouTube
Your frosty friend Bill 🙂


Hello my friends

It’s Sunday again and according to the hands
of the clock on the wall, it’s time to begin my
rambling hehehe. This passed week has been
pretty fair. We got some more snow Friday
and we had to drive into town to pay the light
bill in the midst of it LOL. It wasn’t too bad.
The county snowplows were busy clearing the
roads. Judy never got passed 35 miles an hour.
It was a long drive to town and back due to
that LOL. I did though take pictures as if you
thought I wouldn’t hehehe. I even did a video
of our drive, which I uploaded to Facebook.
Many said they enjoyed riding along with us.
Anyways, It also snowed Wednesday a little
bit and me and the boys got out and played
in it while I took a few pictures. I walked out
to check the mail and they just watched me
from our driveway. They’re very good boys.
Judy and I gave Rocky a haircut Saturday,
or at least we did the best we could LOL.
He’s not fond of getting his hair cut, so it
took both of us to hold him and attempt to
trim him. We are going to have to work out
a plan for getting his underside trimmed 🙂
We’ll figure it out LOL. In the mean time
he looks better than he did hehehe. Benny
isn’t needing a haircut yet. We did him not
too long ago. Today’s just a lazy day here
at the Pearce’s Place. Benny and Rocky
are lying around in the floor and Judy is
behind me on her PC browsing Pinterest
and whatever 🙂 Tonight we’ll watch our
favorite Sunday shows or at least we will
try being tonight’s Superbowl Sunday and
neither of us could care less about football.
Neither of us is a sports fan, so we might
end up watching Family Feud on GSN LOL.
Judy might work some more on her new
book. She’s writing a new poetry book 🙂
I’m hoping that when I die that she can do
something with all of my poetry to provide
her a nice living 🙂 I would put mine in a
book, but it’s more than my right eye can
handle, being I would have to do a lot of
editing and reformatting of all of the poems.
No matter, I’m sure she will be OK. We’re
hoping that her newest book when published
becomes a hit. Time will tell. Yet for now
I must stay alive and do the best I can to
keep her laughing LOL. I do irritate her
from time to time with my dad jokes hehehe.
It’s 16 F degrees right now at 5:13 PM and
it’s supposed to be 3 F degrees by morning.
Still, it’s not too bad for February hehehe.
I bought us 157 more gallons of heating
oil and it was delivered Thursday, so that
should keep us going for another month or
so. Especially since I turned the heat down.
I had turned it up when my daughter came
up, but forgot to turn it back down and it
used a little more heating oil than it would
at a lower setting. No matter, I think we’re
good till spring, but of course it’s still cold
during spring normally. We normally still
have snow then too hehehe. It might be a
warmer spring being our winter has been
not of the norm. So OK, what else has
been going on up this way? Well, Judy’s
mom is still not doing too well. Please put
her in your prayers. My grandmother is
not responding to anyone. She might be
on her last year of life. She’s 108 years
old. My sister is doing well or at least
that’s what my mom tells me. She said
that Peggy’s surgery went well and now
she is home being taken care of by her
kids. Hey Peggy, I won’t call and bother
you, but if ya need to talk, I’m here 🙂
Call any time. I love ya sis. With me way
up here in Nowhere’s Ville it’s hard to be
of any help. Though I do know that God
hears my prayers and does what’s needed.
Prayer can travel further than any mode
of transportation. LOL Rocky has finally
quit begging for treats and laid down with
his brother in the floor. He was driving me
crazy hehehe. Judy was trying to get him
to quit and then I turned and looked at him
and went HEY and then he hushed hehehe.
As if my eyes said it all LOL. I think he
can tell when he has crossed the line LOL,
at least with me hehehe. So, what else is
there to tell ya? Hmm. it looks like for the
moment I cannot think of anything else, so
I guess it’s time for me to begin my search
back through all that I’ve written here for
a word or phrase that I can use for the
title for today’s brand new poem. So it’s
away I go to that place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I think I found a somewhat decent
title, but now I’ve gotta write something
using it. LOL Wish me luck. Here goes.

Another Month

A time of day,
an hour passed
another month
has shadows cast.
The minutes fly,
or so they seem
some as nightmares,
some as dream.
An episode
that finds its place
with aroma
and a taste.
Another month
will come unto
to display then
another view.
So with heartbeats
gathered around
another month
shows solid ground.
With some prayerful
times accord
another month
is great The Lord.
Time will pass on
leaving still
echoes surely
of our will.
So make effort
to make good
another month
the way you should.

So OK, there ya go. I hope that makes at
least a little sense to you hehehe. I had to
read it back to myself to find out what all
I had written hehehe. I do this thing called
automatic writing and I just tune into my
memories and begin writing. It’s my gift
from God. You do know that most of the
time I write all 10 poems and 22 haiku in
the same day in a matter of a few hours 🙂
God gave me this gift and I am using it to
the best of my ability. When He wants me
to do more, I’m sure He will let me know
in some manner or form and He will give
me the ability to do so. Now, to see if I’ve
forgotten to tell you anything. Oh yea,
please keep my bro Mark Green in your
prayers. He’s has blood clots in his leg
and in his lungs. He is scheduled to go
for surgery in the next few days. Take
care bud. God is in control. Keep the
faith dude. Love ya bro. Now I guess
I’ve told you about everything that needs
to be told, so I reckon it’s time for me
to tell you what I tell you most every week
and that is, I wrote some more poems
and haiku. Yep, 10 more poems and
22 more haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there. I hope you can find 1 or the
other that you like or maybe even both.
So, now it’s time for me to begin my
search for that hardly elusive off switch,
but not before I wish you a wonderful
weekend or whatever’s left of it and a
truly blessings filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. Now
to find that off switch. Hehehe I think
I see movement from behind my Advair.
LOL you would think out of all these
years, you would be able to hide better
than that, wouldn’t ya? Well, maybe
not 😉 Anyways, guess what hehehehe,
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny, Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Clouds With Color

A sky of beauty
like no other
are sometimes
some clouds with color.
With flavored sights
far and wide
clouds with color
Mesmeric feelings
come so sweet
clouds with color
look good to eat.
Tasty morsels
find our gaze
clouds with color
blue inlays.
The blue sky filters
what we see
clouds with color
given free.

Silence Between Thoughts

With just but a fraction
of time that we see
we might just be thinking
what others agree.
But yet with some minutes
some time passes by
silence between thoughts
as ones wonder why.
Many might question us
what we think is right
with silence as wording
within every sight.
Silence between thoughts
might right now seem brief,
but others that read you
have doubting belief.
So if all your pauses
are how you reply
remember the truth might
live in your eye.

Indigo Dragonfly

Those days I remember
fishing on the shore
of a little tiny pond
from a time I adore.
An indigo dragonfly
fluttered and flew
across the tiny pond
right there in my view.
Its colors so magical
seeming as a dream
having blue and violet
to bond in the scene.
The colors would shine on
in the bright sun rays
while my Pawpaw and I
fished on summer days
I watched it for hours
as its wings fluttered by
that blessing from God
the indigo butterfly.

Pages Dog-Eared

Our living journal
that so many see
might have a few dog-ears
a frazzled degree.
Pages dog-eared
to remember a day
we can remember
a wonderful way.
Yet many pages
might not be so great
as pages dog-eared
found as just fate.
Maybe a scenario
that turned out bad
times you remember
things you once had.
Those pages dog-eared
might then in turn
become as your journal
with lessons to learn.

A Fresh Wind

Mornings breathing
winds to find
with a fresh wind
time to time.
A fresh wind blowing
in with style
bringing in
a little smile.
Smiles from winter
morning makes
over valleys,
over lakes.
A fresh wind might have
scenes of white
snowflakes falling
there in sight.
With a fresh wind
might be seen
what that might be
someone’s dream.

A Marble Sky

Paintings painted
white and blue
up above me
now are true.
A wondrous sky
with twirling scenes
brings to sight
so many things.
Clouds as billows
floating on
seen as marble
till they’re gone.
So much artwork
filled with blue
with a wonderful,
whitish hue.
God’s Own brushstrokes
then apply
more within a
marble sky.

Angel Of Dawn

With dreams upon midnight
the minutes move on
displaying by morning
an angel of dawn.
Maybe as a flower
that blooms in your sight,
or maybe a person
that you so delight.
An angel of dawn
might be as a friend
or maybe someone
that times transcend.
Often our angels
are not seen at all,
but yet they’re there
to help when you fall.
You might awaken
with life that is gone
and find the answers from
an angel of dawn.

A Misguided Duck

With winters winds blowing
a misguided duck
starts on his journey
late without luck.
Headed the wrong way
which way he’s going
a misguided duck
heads right where it’s snowing.
He flies through the air
in a misguided style
headed the wrong way
then all the while.
The misguided duck
has left the flock
to seek a summertime
southern dock.
Yet this most surely
misguided duck
within his journey
is flat out of luck.

Many Colors

You and I
we might exclaim
many colors
not the same,
but within us
you and I
are God’s children
by and by.
Many colors,
many see,
but they do not
show who’s me.
It’s what’s inside
that is found
which connects us,
common ground.
So quit hating
them and I.
Find God’s love
to then apply.
Different beliefs
are a choice,
true that should
be as their voice,
but those choices
do not make
you and I
a big mistake.
What you think
might not be right,
for the darkness
hides the light.
Let God’s love
to show the way
what to do
and what to say.
Many colors
might transcend,
but they can be
your best friend.

Those times between
the moments there
will sometimes seem
what are not fair.
An interlude
of humps and holes
that make real rough
our daily goals.
We might be found
without a clue
of now and then
the interlude.
So many things
from in-between
might seem as times
nightmarish dream.
Yet some moments
we’ve misconstrued,
might just be
an interlude.

A wasteful moment
is a time without effort,
waiting for others.

Weeding of gardens
does not guarantee they’re gone,
for some might linger.

Belonging to one
does not prevent ownership
of yet another.

Catastrophic times
often come with some lessons
to be later found.

Making all right turns
will create a true circle
that comes back to now.

Photo images
only display what all you saw
and not the texture.

As a flower grows
it displays many moments
gathered throughout time.

Beyond the night air
holds a place for memories
found within our mind.

A dream comes alive
when the truth connects to it
making it as real.

A shadow of time
can become an entity
leaving our footprints.

Buds of a flower
hold life deep within each one
to open up in spring.

Disclosed emotions
can sometimes turn out badly,
so take heed your words.

The grass might look dead,
but it thrives beneath the ground
to be mowed in spring.

Wintertime’s snowflakes
come as angels from Heaven
to cover the ground.

Radiant beauty
is the sun as it glimmers
a warm sunny day.

Dreaming of passion
will not make it to be true,
for it takes action.

The vibe of liars
is a trait within themselves
that began as seed.

Life has a flavor
that many find as sour
due to their choices.

A lions own roar
might scare itself in darkness
if it’s thought alone.

The needs of others
may look to you as weakness,
but they are our lives.

The haves and have nots
envelop our existence
as many will fade.

Mild mannered people
will sometimes hide their true selves,
which are much stronger.
